In the Caring Place Community Kitchen, Joanna shared some very homey Chinese dishes.
The first recipe is a simple Pork Neck Bone with Corn Soup. You may use pork rib to make this soup for a meatier cut of meat. Pork neck bone is very cheap, 99 cents per pound.
2 pounds pork neck bone
4 corns, cut into chunks
3 to 4 slices of ginger
8 to 10 cups of water
salt to taste
Source: Joanna; Serves 6 to 8
Bring a pot a water to a boil and blanch the pork neck bone. This is to get rid of the blood from the bones. Rinse the bones under running cold water to clean them.
Return the pork to a new pot of boiling water. Add a few slices of ginger to get rid of the porky flavour and also to get rid of wind as the Chinese believes. Boil for one hour on medium heat, covered.
Add the corn and boil for another 15 to 30 minutes. Season with salt before serving.
